Shahid and Saif both are very special, natural and spontaneous- says Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut is currently on a promotion spree for her upcoming film, Rangoon, along with co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.

Speaking during a recent event, the 29-year-old was all praises for the duo and went on to say that she feels fortunate to have worked with them.

She said, “They are incredible actors. They are amazing with Vishal Bhardwaj sir (director) and he has given them wonderful characters in the films that he did with them. They both are very special, very natural and spontaneous.”

“I feel fortunate to be working with great actors like them. I liked Saif as Langda Tyagi in Omkara and Shahid was incredible in Haider. They (Bhardwaj -Saif and Vishal- Shahid) have great tuning and they had same energy for this film (Rangoon),” the Queen star added.

Kangana who has collaborated with director Vishal Bhardwaj for the first time also spoke about his prowess as a filmmaker and elaborated, “He has courage to take on subjects which are different like Rangoon is a love story in the backdrop of world war II. It is a very courageous move and not many filmmakers will present a love story in rugged and rustic backdrop of war.”

She also talked about her character in the flick and how she mirrors that fearless instinct of Nadia in real life.

Says Kangana, “She (Fearless Nadia) is a stuntwoman and it’s an amalgamation of many characters in the film. I am known to speak my mind and to say things that I stand for is right. That sort of conviction and identity was important for the role.”

She added, “I feel this character has landed in my lap because I signify that part (fearless) in today’s contemporary actresses that we have today.”

Co-produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Vishal Bhardwaj and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, the film is slated for a February 24 release.
